BenQ clocks up another world first with the launch of the MX880UST Projector

BenQ clocks up another world first with the launch of the MX880UST Projector


Australia, December 2010:

The BenQ MX880UST is a DLP projector which can light up a big screen when placed less than half a metre away from it. It’s the world’s first ‘ultra short throw’ DLP projector and it’s just arrived in Australia.

Designed predominantly for the education sector and for use with interactive whiteboards, although perfect for business use the MX880UST is the most versatile projector of its type – it’s portable, lightweight, requires minimal set up and most importantly, takes up limited space thanks to its ‘ultra short throw’ of just 0.3 projecting a large image in a small area.

'Ultra short throw’ is the latest advancement in projector technology, and offers many features and benefits over traditional projection. The most obvious is that the projector’s light stream is guaranteed. With the MX880UST mounted just inches from the screen or whiteboard, the projected image is protected from shadowing which is commonplace with traditional projection when a person or object interrupts the light stream.

The MX880UST is revolutionary with 2500 ANSI lumen brightness, XGA resolution and 3000:1 high contrast ratio, designed to not only bring teachers and students closer in the 21st century classroom, but also future-proof schools with 3D-ready projection, PC-less presentation, USB Display, LAN Display and wireless Display options as well as LAN Control networking capability.

Said Chee F. Chung, general manager for BenQ Australia, “Distance has always been one of the greatest limitations of a standard projector. The MX880UST brings a 78” whiteboard sized big picture in a mere projection distance of 0.48 metres with BenQ’s exclusive aspherical lens projection design – offering extra projection flexibility for small-sized classrooms.

“Shadow disruptions are a thing of the past,” said Chung, “making this projector ideal for teachers and educational institutions. The projector boasts ‘brilliant colour’, limited maintenance and less glare and shuttering, facilitating learning through crisp-clear readability and stable picture performances.

RRP: $2499.00
